helped by her time out of the political spotlight really. so it's a good thing for president obama. it allows the two of them to come together and make that argument as she made that they're really above politics here. >> morris, no matter what she does there's going to be speculation about what does this mean for 2016. do you read anything into this joint interview having to do with her possibility of running a few years down the road? >> yeah. for sure. >> t.j., i just feel good when i see a unified strong democratic party. it makes democrats feel good. we know we don't always have the situation. as my friend susan knows. but this is a strong message that this is a job well done. it's a shift going into governing. there will be another shift between obama and clinton when she starts to run for president. so this is just the appropriate way to handle it. it feels very good as a democrat to see them together. >> what about joe though, morris? what about joe? what if he decides to get into the race in 2016? >> i think they'll find something else to do in 2016. >> all right. well sus
outbreak and the action the fda just took. it is all happening now patti ann: get ready for political fireworks. president obama right now on his way to las vegas where he is expected to unveil his plan for immigration reform. this one-day after a bipartisan group of senators laid out their own proposal. hello, everyone, i'm patti ann browne in for jenna lee. jon: i'm jon scott. the president's plan expected to mirror much of the senator's blueprint but some key differences could spark a fierce debate. molly henneberg is live at the white house with more. those differences, molly, what are they? >> reporter: hi, jon. the white house says the president believes the senate framework is very good, as a quote, cause for hope but there isn't an actual piece of legislation yet so the white house is very careful not to comment too much what the president would would not like about it. there is a may be a key difference the president may want a faster path to citizenship than the by partisan senate group may want. the white house is not clear how much border security the president would want
a different theme. >> would hillary clinton really adopt an obama continuation message? i mean, she is her own political entity. this is a continuation of clintonism. >> i agree, i thought all the blind quotes sounded to me like joe biden people trying to sound like they could be anyone's people. i don't think if you're hillary clinton there is an issue about a private conversation. if you're hillary clinton and you want to go out there and do it, you will go out there, and crush who is in the primary, joe biden or cuomo, up need to. it seems much more of a joe biden-type argument, saying obviously we'll coordinate and work out. >> karen finney, joe biden is a great vice president, it is a job that is hard to be great at. he has found a way to be great at. is there any way he could be talked into it doing it for 16 years. >> the longest serving vice president in history. >> are you suggesting the joe biden-hillary clinton ticket? i had that thought today. he has actually made the role of vice president in the way i think she has re-made the role of secretary of state. i think the country would
and sounded like a grouch attacking president obama. a very political speech which i thought was discordant yesterday. there were two -- captain kelly, gabby giffords's husband, and the captain of the bald moore county sheriff's department james johnson who spoke very powerfully articulately and eloquently for common sense gun control measures, and then the other side of the panel, there were three gun nuts on the panel. david coppel, a professor from denver, a woman gail trotter, and wayne lapierre from the nra. gail trotter was out of her mine. i mean, she said guns -- i got the exact quote here -- that guns have to -- guns keep women safe. guns keep women safe. guns make women safe is the exact quote. and every mother needs an ak-15 in the home to protect their kids. and of course wayne lapierre comes back and says the only answer is we have to make every school an armed camp. >> it's time to throw an immediate blanket of security around our children. about a third of our schools right now have armed security already, because it works, and that somebody is grow
mince interviews would a big win for president obama and secretary clinton. they got great pr out of it. joining us from washington is senior political analyst brit hume. yesterday i you told chris wallace that you think hillary clinton should not be described as that great secretary of state. why? >> well, first of all, it's no, not easy to be a great secretary of state. foreign policy is a province really of the president. the secretary of state is the person who is his emissary and he is expected to direct the diplomats to carry it out. so that's point one. point 2 is, that she has worked very hard. she has traveled all over the place. set some record, some 112 countries. the list of achievements that can be attributed to her is not long and is not major. i mean, how well is the reset with russia worked out which she was very much involved in starting? how are things between arabs and israelis? closer to peace than before? how about iran? north carolina? their nuclear weapons programs. have they been retarded, held back, halted? no, i don't think so. so you look around for a clinton
movement in american politics. their entire indictment of barack obama is, he's mean! that's pathetic. >> right. >> are you serious? >> yes, she is serious, ron. we just saw one of our fellow conservatives talking about the president's plan to outlaw fox news. actually all the president pointed out and i'm quoting was that if a republican member of congress is not punished by fox news or by rush limbaugh for working with a democrat on a bill of common interest, then you'll see more of them doing it. which i don't know, ron, sounds pretty obvious to me, but are you also losing sleep at night because you're afraid the president wants to take away your fox news and your guns? >> you know, i'm very happy to come on msnbc and say thank god for fox news. the fact of the matter is without fox news we'd still think that benghazi, that that attack, that terrorist attack happened because of a video. without katherine and special report and the hard news people. by the way, they have more hard news people than msnbc, cnn, and everybody else -- >> sorry, ron, ron, ron, i accept your analysis on b

sort of reached over, and i thought that she touched president obama on the wrist the way you might casually do with a friend. so i don't think that they're frenemies. it seems they had genuine affection for each other as they talked about politics, as they talked about their rivalry, yes, and also 2016. >> i consider hillary a strong friend. >> i mean, very warm, close. i think there's a sense of understanding that sometimes doesn't even take words because we have similar views. >> reporter: rewind five years to their bruising primary battle. >> you're likable enough, hillary. >> thank you so much. i'm here. he's not. >> i can't tell who i'm against sometimes. >> how long did it take to get over that? >> it didn't take long as people perceive it. >> it took longer for their staffs. not to mention -- >> i think spouses take it much harder. in a way -- >> reporter: 2016 came up. the president laughed off a question about endorsing clinton. >> and i was literally inaugurated four days ago. and you're talking about elections four years from now. >> reporter: and the secretary side-step
commentary on special report. >> you didn't hear it on 60 minutes but president obama like many a president before him is unhappy with the press. in a separate weekend interview with the liberal political journal the new republic he grumbled about fox news and rush limbaugh. nothing unexpected there. he explained reporters generally in an effort to be impartial treat democrats and republicans as equivalent. they fail to note that one side is trying to do what is right and we haven't seen that kind of attitude on the other side. never mind of course the president at that moment was being interviewed by one of his campaign donors and supporters who is the owner of the new republic. never mind that he basically whistled up 60 minutes on short notice to sit down with him and his secretary of state for an interview could have been described as just how great is the relationship is between you two? i must have missed a friendly interview 60 minutes did with president bush or secretary of state colin powell or condoleezza rice. you say mr. bush would never have offered one. it is true if he did he
,944. connell: getting close. thank you. president obama getting set to unveil his plan for immigration reform. he will have that later in the day from las vegas. haley barbour joins us now. the politics of this have been really talked about a lot. in fact, we talked about it earlier this hour. let me start with the economics of immigration reform. a number of ceos have told us that they would like to see this in the perspective of, hey, let's get some highly skilled immigrants in here that will help the economy. that will help us to get us turned around. your views are what? >> there is no question if we follow what is good economic policy for america we will have immigration reform. it will allow more skilled and unskilled foreign workers to come into the united states. we need the labor. if you look at the labor participation rate in the united states, it is almost at a record low for the percentage of adults who are actually working or trying to get a job. only about 58%. if you are going to grow your economy, you have to have enough workers and we do not right now. connell: we are behind
. this decision said the recess appointments as they have been done not just by president obama, but all presidents in recent decades. they are all unconstitutional. >> sorry this a political decision? >> this is the question that is hard to answer. these are three very conservative republican judges. the political implications of the decision are clear. for a republican anti-democrat and can i say that that was the motivation of the judges? i can't. >> can we assume it's the u.s. supreme court that will consider this or leave it hanging? >> they have to. it's too important of a decision and think the supreme court will take it. >> this is an automatic. >> almost automatic. very difficult to predict because this is an aggressive conservative majority on the supreme court. citizens united and campaign finance. the second amendment and gun control. this court has been aggressively conservative and it could be affirmed by the supreme court. >> what are does it say about president obama? >> the d.c. circuit court of appeals that decided this case often called the second most important court

to see who can put the most lenient path forward if obama demands a smoother path to citizenship. let's make it as hard and as egregious as possible. wouldn't that work better? he questioned the political utility of a deal. not the part that involves human beings or anything. saying he reviews colorful research my friends indicating immigrants no longer came to better their lot through hard work but because they believed the government's source of prosperity. in short, they were not viable republicans. they were just moochers like the rest of us 47%. in addition to his fear that immigrants lack a basic sense of industry and responsibility, rush worried republicans will be falsely intact as intolerant because of the thing he said before that part. why would they be -- that's weird. that's crazy.

obama promised he would do this in his first year. he did not. the worry is we go at this again and it doesn't work. the president gets all the political points. the republicans get all the political blame. a political victory but not a strategic victory for the country. we need to make this a national purpose of policy and not an exercise in politics. i hope we'll keep our eye on that. that is going to be the big challenge. host: we have an idea from jbc. al in rhode island, hi, al. caller: good morning. thank you for c-span. the american people want immigration but they want legal immigration. we do not one no favoritism for anybody. you talk about language. the chinese came here. it is not right. this president is so far off the ball. we will bring 11 million more people into this country when we don't put those people to work first? i did not think that is right. we have other problems that are more important. we're flooding this country with unskilled workers. guest: the only reason on skilled workers come to this country is because there is unskilled work that needs to be
a latte will ya, please? >>> hi. we're back here at the table digesting president obama's big immigration speech in nevada and a couple of things that struck me. you know, one, i think we all are aware of the basic sort of political contours of this. historic losses cost the republican party the election. that could harm them for decades to come from something republican party leaders i think all realize has to happen here. can they get the rank and file to go along? i was checking twitter in the break that caught my attention. one of the leaders in the house, one out leaders of the conservative movement who helped kill immigration reform in 2006, 2007 is steve king from iowa. he's had some pretty harsh things to say about immigrants in the years and now an open senate seat in iowa thanks to the retirement of tom harkin and the point of questions asking luke in the last segment was, there is a difference of republicans running statewide where there is a real stigma to be a nativist and republicans running in the safely republican districts where the biggest threat is a challenge of the ri
the interview s? >> that's right. no news was broken but president obama did himself a great favor nominating hillary clinton as secretary of state, insulating himself from any sort of primary challenge. also did her a great favor by insulating her from the politics of the last four years. joe biden, i think, is going to be in the center of a lot of the big political fights over the next year and going to see his approval ratings probably take a beating. of course, playing kyoto say this isn't about 2016. what a fantastic launch for hillary clinton. should she decide to run. i think one of the things we have seen over the last elections is that the person who has some strong connection with a base who's a candidate almost drafted by the base does better. mitt romney didn't have that. john mccain didn't have that. i hazard to say i don't think biden has that either. any of the democrats i talked to always say clinton, clinton, clinton. it's time for a woman. i think this will be hillary clinton's big decision to make and my goodness, joe biden certainly can't be happy about that but i think th
, they really were going to sort of change the face of american politics. >> john: they did. >> they did temporarily. >> john: they marginalized the whole brand. >> fast forward three years. beck is gone. obama wins easily and now palin's gone. the whole thing sort of imploded as it had to because it was so reckless and it was so sort of radically hateful. you know, beck with his conspiracies and palin about her nonstop sense of victimization and things like that. so it's worth noting this is soft the end of an era. fox itself, still very much lost to conspiracies. still very, very much loss in a sense of self-pity particularly with obama's inauguration. but it's not what roger ailes thought he was going to build. that's not what they have anymore. >> john: do you think -- this is my last question about palin. i want to move on to fox news and their outrage model but do you think that ails did this to give pail an out so she could say she quit? was it an insult to of oar her so little money or was he doing her a favor? >> i think it was an insult. my guess is they felt like they had to o
eight years of the obama presidency is ignorant of american history and the greater challenges we have faced. what we need are political leaders who will clearly and boldly state the case for reform. if that means blocking obama's agenda or passing our reforms and have obama explain why he is opposed to them. we should articulate our goals and policy programmings and explain them. >> tom cotton of arkansas. [applause] >> good afternoon, ladies and gentlemen. i'm the director of the at the heritage society. welcome to our conversation about life. it is strategically timed on this 40th anniversary on the infamous roe v. wade decision. hundreds of thousands of people gathered on the mall to march for life. thank you for standing for life. a generation and a half have grown up in the shadow of roe. we are thankful for those pro life leaders who have cast life into the darkness created by the ethic of roe. today, we are joined we -- by foreof the lights. chuck donovon is the president of the institute. chuck has served the pro life cause at the national right to life committee in the reagan

of late, but today an associated press raised these concerns saying, quote: in politics power resides in the moment. any immediate economic setback or the perception of one could weaken obama's clout or at least distract him as he carefully tries to put his imprint on initiatives dealing with immigration and gun violence. let's talk about it with a.b. stoddard, an associate editor and columnist for "the hill." a.b., the president has been mostly talking about immigration and gun violence lately, and yet we still have an unemployment rate at 7.8%. if labor force participation were the same as when he took office, it would be over 10%. we've got a fall in our nation's economic output in the last quarter, and you've got new, um, shrinking of consumer confidence. those are some pretty big issues. does that threaten to derail what the president wants to accomplish? >> well, it will. you mentioned before whether or not these issues would distract him. i mean, a troubled economy has to distract him whether or not he actually focuses on it is another question. much of these last few months we
's one reason obama likes to come badge it's amazing. >> steve: it looks like cbs has a dog in that race. then you look at john dickerson, political director last week giving advice that the president should anilate the republican party going forward. it's interesting, in your book issues you talk about how during the campaign, the media absolutely ignored the biggest story. >> well, many big stories. >> steve: because they weren't helpful to the president. >> exactly. journalists, my old boss, bob novak, used to say a reporter is someone who would sell his soul for a story. it's when the story would make barak obama look bad or his presidency look like a failure, there is a total lack of journalistic curiousity, unwillingness to sell one's soul for a story. really big stories like benghazi became nonstories. editorial judgments were made to play these things down, to just set them aside, or you had a lot of the coverage of the job market that just didn't rise to the challenge of demonstrating how bad things were for people. we always hear about job when is there is a republican presiden
